Missouri Drought Assessment Committee to meet Tuesday about conditions


The Missouri Drought Assessment Committee plans to meet Tuesday to talk about current conditions.

Board members expect to hold a virtual meeting from 2 to 4 p.m. The public is invited to watch the meeting.

Committee members expect to talk about recommended changes to the ongoing state and federal responses. Since July, Missouri continues to experience drought conditions.

Gov. Michael Parson signed two different executive orders in response to the drought. The orders cover more than 50 counties, including an extension through March 2023.

According to the state's most recent drought monitor data, parts of Missouri continue to experience abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions.

To help with conditions, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources lists several options for drought assistance. That includes an emergency farm loan to help eligible farmers or ranchers rebuild and recover from sustained losses.
